Marvel studios release a clip on its indian youtube channel, ‘India Marvel’ featuring Olympic gold medalist Neeraj Chopra. The clip is for the announcement of the availability of the tickets and urging people to book tickets now. While the collaboration was much unexpected since Neeraj Chopra never did such ads for the media industry. Although Wakanda Forever and Neeraj Chopra do have a convergence of interest and that is a spear.
In the announcement trailer, we can see Neeraj Chopra jumping from the dark sky, and his ‘sneakers’ absorbing the kinetic shock, just like the Black Panther. The athlete later runs with the javelin in his hand, throws with this full power and it turns into a spear as he throws. As the Athlete runs to throw the javelin, it narrates, ‘Jo hame kamzor samhje, wo unki kamzori hai. Dikha denge unhe ki hum kon hai ‘ (Those who think that we are weak, it’s their weakness to think so. We will show, what we are).
Wakanda Forever will continue the legacy
Wakanda Forever is the sequel movie to Marvel’s Black Panther. Black Panther Chadwick Boseman was the lead cast in the movie. The movie was about a hidden village, exceptionally advanced and cultured way beyond their time. After the demise of the star cast actor Chadwick Boseman due to years of prolonged colon cancer, it was really hard for the makers to move the story forward.
After the unexpected death of the main lead actor, the makers decided not to recast T’Challa. The decision of the studio was respected and it was to honor Chadwick, everyone understood that.
Under the direction of Ryan Coogler and production by Marvel Studios, the movie stars Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Dominique Thorne, Florence Kasumba, Michaela Coel, Tenoch Huerta, Martin Freeman, and Angela Bassett.
